This collage & mixed media on wood is my tribute to Maria Irene Fornés, now in her 87th year. She is the winner of nine Obie wards, avant garde playwright, director & teacher and a leading figure of the off-off Broadway movement in the 1960's. A documentary feature about Fornés called "The Rest I Make Up" by Michelle Memran was made in collaboration with Fornés and focuses on her creative life in the years after she stopped writing due to dementia. I salute both of them!

My background is bare bones working class, yet my parents never encouraged their children to identify with any model of social or economic disadvantage. On the contrary, we were inspired to empathize and assist those people in our community who suffered from poverty, severe illness, or any form of mental disability. My mother worked for years at a hospital for sick children, she advocated for disenfranchised members of the lesbian and gay community, and in her later years, she volunteered her services to a large seniors' center in the heart of the city. My father always chauffeured the volunteers to places where they could do the most good, and he collected and delivered used clothing to the less fortunate. My young experiences made it easy for me to identify with the underdog, and to constantly question and attempt to make sense of the world we live in. Theatre does the same with its depictions of the alienated, the undervalued and the misunderstood. Theatre questions the status quo, and prompts the audience to look inside themselves for answers. By using the theme of theatre in my artwork, I am provided with a platform to express my affinity with so many of the sentiments and moral challenges presented on the stage. Collage and mixed media techniques allow me to be experimental and to work in an intuitive fashion. Every piece of art that I create is a combination of my inspirations, my life experience and my subconscious mind. My focus on the theatre helps me to identify and clarify in my creative pieces exactly what it is I care about in this world.
